RECAP15 (Re-thinking the Efficacy of International Climate Agreements Post COP15) deals with the problem of international climate cooperation. The climate negotiations in Copenhagen 2009 (COP15) and the following negotiations in Cancun 2010 (COP16) have drastically shown that continuation of the Kyoto-Protocol, the establishment of a follow-up climate agreement, respectively, are challenging tasks. Therefore RECAP15 aims to provide concrete recommendations and institutional proposals for future international climate policy.
RECAP15 is a joint initiative of the European University Viadrina (EUV) in Frankfurt/Oder, the University Regensburg and the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ in Leipzig together with the Climate Service Centre in Hamburg). Together with ten external partners these institutes build a network of scientists and political stakeholders to give climate policy advise. – For further information on the network click here.

- Farmers are barely insured against drought. Few farmers in Saxony-Anhalt are insured against crop loss
due to heat and drought. Reimund Schwarze doubts whether emergency aid based on the expected or true loss of income is the
best solution. Index-based insurance would be a superior, forward-looking approach. (MDR)
